➲ Various Artists “Prietenii” ★ Label: Hibernate ★ Released 05 December 2016 ★

“We are pleased to announce our Prietenii compilation album to help raise much needed funds for stray Romanian dogs. 100% of the income from the album will be donated to the Romanian Rescue Appeal, a UK based charity that to date has saved over 1400 dogs from the horrors of the Romanian public shelters and streets. Contributing artists to thee compilation State River Widening, The Declining Winter, Danny Clay, Leigh Toro, ISAN, Ian Hawgood, Wil Bolton, David Newlyn, The Inventors of Aircraft, Olan Mill, Simon Bainton, Isnaj Dui, Antonymes, Strom Noir, The Green Kingdom, Darren McClure, Caught In The Wake Forever, Hybernation and offthesky.

Winter is a particularly challenging time for their rescued dogs as temperatures can plummet to -20 degrees. To date the Romanian Rescue Appeal has already managed to build 10 out of 12 barns and just need to complete the last two. But they also need lots of additional doghouses, dog beds, roofing and windbreakers to protect the dogs in other enclosures and pens from the winter elements, as well as extra gravel to minimise the effects of flooding from the unprecedented rainfall this year. Our goal is to raise at least £1000.

Thank you for your support.
